Axiscope has developed a complete Quality Assurance Process Management module integrated into Axiscope DSP, which allows manufacturers to better manage compliance and anticipate supplier-related risks. As part of the supplier approval or audit process (VDA standard compatible), periodic information collection campaigns are used to verify the compliance of suppliers and their processes with standards or regulations.
Our system makes it possible to define, standardize and manage the activities of advanced planning and quality control of suppliers as well as their processes and production tools. APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) modules, management of non-conformities, chargebacks, requests for derogations as well as progress action plans complete this management system for the supplier and risk management policy.

WHAT IS THE PLAN FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS? WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE?
We need to scale up our current business model and organization to tackle our major competitors such as SAP, COUPA and IVALUA.
We want to be the preferred partner in Procurement and Quality Software Platform for the Industrial market.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE YOU’VE FACED SO FAR?
Our biggest challenge is the level of maturity of the Procurement function.
The role of Purchasing is not always considered strategic within organizations, when it becomes more than critical to better manage Supplier Risk and Quality to ensure revenue growth.
Purchasing teams need tools to meet these challenges. Digitizing procurement addresses these issues by automating end-to-end supplier management and Procurement processes.
But company’s internal decision making process for such software investment is very long and demanding.
Which is sometimes a nonsense considering how critical Purchasing Team’s mission is for the company sustainability.
